    Seems related. I think the business aspect of charter schools is devious as well, though, because of how money alters the way everything is approached. High school was given third rate treatment because there was more money in recruiting middle schoolers or elementary students, and the high school became a wild west.

    Also, the alternative certification program in Texas really, really needs a fine tuning.

    •  Alt certification is a joke (0+ / 0-)

      I went through the alternative certification in TX; it was a total joke. That said, studies have quite clearly shown that even a teaching degree doesn't correlate with effective teaching, so clearly our entire teacher training program, traditional or alternative, is ineffective.
